Happy April and happy Thankful Thursday everyone!
During these stressful times, I am trying to stay positive and cheerful. It is Spring and we are having some nice weather days. I am seeing and hearing more and more spring-summer birds now. I keep hearing the Eastern Phoebe somewhere in my yard, I saw my first of the season Chipping Sparrow. I guess I should report I also saw the dreaded Brown-headed Cowbird on my deck. I do enjoy all the happy bird sounds around my yard.
One day hubby and I took a walk on the fire road and to the lake. The sky and clouds looked pretty.
Update: not sure for the reasons, but the fire road walks along with fishing, kayaking and hiking are not allowed now due to the Covid-19. We rarely see other people on our walks, so I am not sure the purpose of closing down access to the reservoir.
Across the lake is the Bald Eagle nest. We missed seeing the eagles, one could be sitting low in the nest..
A few Canada geese on the lake..
You can just barely make out the lake/reservoir through these pine trees.
Seen from the parking lot at the fire road and kind of far out in the field, but I noticed a group of Wild Turkeys.
Back at home on our driveway we noticed around 7 Great Blue herons flying around, I think there was also a juvenile Bald Eagle too. I could only capture this photo of the Great Blue Heron. The herons fly in circles to confuse the eagle and to protect their nest.
A pair of Eastern Bluebirds came back to check out one of the birdhouses, apparently a Carolina Chickadee already took over the house. The chickadee actually chased the female Bluebird away.
I am thankful and happy to see the Bluebirds are back at another one of my birdhouses. Fingers are crossed that they stay and are successful nesting.
I am always thankful for my library ebooks. MY latest books finished are:
New Tricks by David Rosenfelt, #7 in the Andy Carpenter series.
